  • I've sat and watched this city crumble
    Just as it was being built
    And the bigger it gets the less it's thought of
    I'm just scared of losing all that we have left
    And the colors of these roads are matching the rainy sky
    I'm too blind to see what's really here in front of our eyes
    And I hope someday this will all reverse
    And send us back to the times before
    Before we grew up and lost the novelty of
    Clear blue skies and climbing trees
    Can't you see what our lies have come to be?
    Can't you see what our lies have come to be?
    We used to just make friends so easily
    Never judging anyone was how it's meant to be
    Our parents were always heroes in our eyes
    But TV and magazines soon changed our minds
    And the colors of these roads are matching the rainy sky
    We're too blind to see what's really here in front of our eyes
    And I hope someday this will all reverse
    And send us back to the times before
    Before we grew up and lost the novelty of
    Clear blue skies and climbing trees
    Can't you see what our lies have come to be?
    Can't you see what our lies have come to be?
    I watched people I loved turn into rust
    Wearing almost nothing they go out after dusk
    As if to be accepted you need to sell yourself
    They need to learn there's much more to this world
    They need to learn there's much more to this world
    And the colors of these roads are matching the rainy sky
    We're too blind to see what's really here in front of our eyes
    And I hope someday this will all reverse
    And send us back to the times before
    Before we grew up and lost the novelty of
    Clear blue skies and climbing trees
    Can't you see what our lies have come to be?
    Can't you see what our lies have come to be?
